The right-hander, who left the Dodgers’ game against the San Diego Padres after hearing a “pop” in his left knee, said Wednesday that “everything checked out good” in tests.

“It kind of spooked me,” Tolleson said. “I didn’t want to test it or throw another pitch or anything. … Today there’s no swelling, no soreness.”

Tolleson said he felt the pop as he was releasing the ball and extending as he released the pitch to the Padres’ Gregorio Petit. He iced the knee overnight and was walking normally today.

“Today I’m just going to kind of take it easy, play catch, not do a lot else,” he said. “Tomorrow I should be good to go.”
